Christmas music...

Ok, it's not a memory but I just wanted to talk about Christmas music. I have a collection of Christmas cds. It ranges from traditional Bing Crosby, Sinatra, Louis Armstrong, Willie Nelson all the way to Moody Blues, Jon Bon Jovi, Run DMC, Springsteen, Sting, Sheryl Crow, even some Alternative/Punk Christmas songs. Oh yeah, and Transiberian Orchestra.

I think I have close to 50 cds. This is the first year I'm not adding to it. I usually see one or two I just have to have. My dh tells me I have too many but I just love a variety. He likes traditional. I prefer the newer versions.

Some of my favorites are: Sheryl Crow & Jon Bon Jovi's versions of Blue Christmas (Nancy Wilson of Heart also does an excellent version of this); Sarah McLachlan and Bare Naked Ladies, God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen; (forget the name - maybe Ronnie Spector?) Rockin Around the Christmas Tree; Sarah McLachlan's version of Joni Mitchell's Wish I had a River to skate away on song. Of course, I love Transiberian Orchestra too.

Can you tell I love music? I know I'm missing some great ones but there are just too many to name.

I keep 6 in my car at a time and put it on shuffle. After two or three days, I take the 6 in and bring 6 more out. It's time for a change tonight.

I will try to come up with a memory for tomorrow. My brain is currently fried.

hey!! you should get Josh Groban's Noel CD. It is so awesome ... when I listen to it, I feel like I am transported into a cozy room with the fireplace crackling warm and cozy... and Chuck (my new TV crush) serving me drinks :-) hehe.. sorry, just had to throw him in there. There is nothing new on TV.

its okay. The green one bugged me because the links were down and not on the right side of the page. Also it is easy to change the look because it is only a template and I choose which one I feel like using.

I'm with you- I love Christmas music, I think I am down to just 20 Cd's of Christmas music due to our last garage sale. (My dh also thought I had too many!-they just don't understand!!!)

Do like Bruces, Santa Claus is coming to town.

I love your selections and I need to get the Sarah MacLachlan "River", loved it. Indigo Girls have a nice version of that song too. I also love Nancy Wilson from Heart-she has a terrific live solo album.

We love the Ella Fitzgerald Swingin' Christmas-still my favorite of all time. I also love the song by the Jackson Five-I've heard it a bunch of times in the store. I am going to have to fire up the iTunes store tomorrow.....
